Pipe Support Repair Services
Pipe support corrosion is one of the most common causes of piping failure. Rust, water-accumulation, galvanic corrosion, thermal expansion movements, and vibrations can all contribute to overall corrosion and produce disastrous results.
Banks Industrial Group’s (BIG) pipe support repair services are fast, safe, and produce durable results. We combine Belzona metal repair composites with cold bonding techniques application techniques to rapidly bond wear plates at the pipe support location without the use of hot work.

Pipe Support Corrosion and Wear Increase the Risk of Piping Failure, Shutdown, and Environmental Damage
Corrosion and wear in pipe support areas can directly lead to process piping failure.
Rust will often penetrate crevices or gaps between the pipe and support base. Water and atmospheric contaminants collect in these areas where they eat away the pipe coating and eventually the pipe itself. In other instances, galvanic corrosion will form as a result of bi-metallic contact between dissimilar metals. Thermal expansion movements and operational vibrations also cause pipe wear well.
If left undetected and untreated, corrosion and wear will progress into a thin-wall condition and increase your risk of piping failure.
BIG’s Polymeric Pipe Support Repair Services Strengthen Worn Areas and Mitigate Risks from Corrosion
Banks Industrial Group uses Belzona construction polymers to repair, strengthen, and improve pipe support areas. Using cold bonding techniques, we attach metal wear pads that serve as a gasket and isolate the pipe from the base. Our cold bonding method also seals gaps, thereby preventing moisture penetration. The compounds cure rapidly and can be applied in-situ without hot work. Once applied, the polymeric materials form a buffer to separate bi-metallic contact and prevent galvanic corrosion.
If an existing pipe exhibits damage to the point of a thin-wall or holed condition, BIG uses ISO/ASME-compliant Belzona SuperWrap II pipe wrap to rapidly rebuild and restore the damaged areas.
We also repair damaged concrete bases with Belzona Magma Screed and Magma CR polymers. These products are remarkably durable and resist impacts, vibration, and chemical exposure. Application and cure time run markedly faster than conventional concrete. As a result, repairs can be completed in days, as opposed to weeks.
